Jenna Kim Jones is a comedian known for her strong personality and little to no upper body strength. She recently came to grips with the fact that she will never be able to do a pull up and earn her 4th grade Presidential Fitness Award though she plans to exploit this limitation into a book or reality television deal.
Jenna was born in Seoul, Korea and lived there for approximately 8 years until she moved to Provo, Utah. At 18, Jenna left Provo to attend New York University where she majored in Producing and Writing for Television. During her time at NYU, she interned at Follow Productions, The Martha Show, The Late Show with David Letterman, The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and CBS Primetime Casting.
After graduating from NYU, Jenna began performing stand up comedy while she worked at The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. After working at The Daily Show for almost 4 years, Jenna met her husband Allan Moss and the two were married in July of 2012 at which point Jenna left New York City to move to Los Angeles, California to pursue comedy (and sunshine).
When she isn’t working on her Netflix addiction, Jenna spends her days and nights writing and telling jokes all over the country. Once upon a time, Huffington Post named Jenna One of 18 Funny Women You Should Be Following On Twitter. For those of you who don’t know, that is a compliment. However, it’s when she gets her name on a Buzzfeed list that she’ll know she’s really made it. Jenna has appeared on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and performed stand up alongside some of the best comedians including Jim Gaffigan, John Oliver, Wyatt Cenac and Aasif Mandvi. Her podcast, #SorryNotSorry with Jenna Kim Jones, is one of the Top 200 Comedy Podcasts on iTunes.
